I have the same problem with any pci-e external card (tried 3 diferent cards) but it would speckle & freeze monitor, then go blank (black screen). I turned off on board video, set vram to 0, & tried external powered vcard & board powered. I never had a "OVER HEATING" issue w/ cpu, gpu or anything else. I tried to get help from ECS (the board maker), big waste of time!!!! The only video this seems to want to run is its own ONBOARD! It works fawlessly for what it is! I've been trying to solve the same issue for the 8 months I've had the board. I still look, thinking maybe i'll get lucky. I basically given up on ever using a good v-card w/ this board.

Could be the CPU is overheating, you may want to check and make sure all fans are working properly, as well as making sure you have a decent amount of thermal paste on your heatsink, i recommend antec silver.

What are some easy computer games that my grandma could play?


I think she will enjoy point & click adventures, wizard101, puzzle games, simulators, turn based strategy games and turn based rpg's. You should check it out and teach her how to play the games. Those are fun and easy games to play. Computer and video games should be indulged in a measured manner. There are advantages in playing games and having fun topped it all. However, everyone knows that games can be addictive so one must be careful to set a limit and still be productive in other ways. Playing computer or video games should just be for fun and should not cause a problem with a person's productivity.

It sounds like you were playing a limited shareware version (ie., a short-term trial), so you probably need to buy the full version of the games to continue playing them.

White screen when playing pc games


Sounds like 1- you have a virus or 2- your computer's graphics card is not sufficient for the game you are trying to play. Double check all the requirements, if you meet them you have a virus. Hope i've shed some light on the problem :)

Cool fan


this could be a few different things you may not have enough memory(ram) in the computer, the video card can't handle the games because there isn't enough memory on the card. it never hurts to add another fan to cool it off better. most higher end video cards have cooling fans on them too.
